The institute currently holds mutual research collaboration agreements with institutions in the USA, the UK, South Korea, China, etc. The institute intends to strengthen its collaboration with ASEAN countries in the near future, as we believe that our long experience in occupational health practice and research can be an important reference for currently industrializing countries, as they tackle emerging occupational health issues.
